About Search 4 Xtraterrestrial Life

In this blog, I talk about how aliens might live, how their bodies might function, what types of aliens there might be, and the possible structures in an alien society. I bring you up-to-date news about anything in space involving the possibilities of life. Also, I talk about the histories of our own species, and their endeavors into space. Please subscribe to my blog, and enjoy reading it!

Adaptation to New World: Genetic Engineering

As multiple worlds are colonized by alien beings, they might see that they might not want to alter the natural environment. One alternative to terraforming and domes is genetic engineering. This process will be hard, and will probably take many generations. Any advanced civilization might choose to experiment with fast-breeding animals, to test the results. If a being changes even one wrong gene, that creature would not live long on an alien world. As our technology and understanding about the genetic code advances, we may decide to alter our bodies to travel to other planets.
